  1. I still own my newsperson’s writer’s hat (what I imagined it to be when I bought it decades ago, that is), MBC. I was lucky enough to work in a huge newsroom at the start of my career where I was galvanized by the tap-tap-tap of typewriters! Big rolls of paper spilled out of the carriages, editors criss-crossed their changes on the sentences and paragraphs and held up the finished scroll, and copy aides (including me) would stick it in tubes for a pneumatic ride down to the printing press room. Oh, yeah, what a time.

  2. I have a very romanticized vision of being a member of the Algonquin Round Table, so I think I understand. In reality I wouldn’t fit in, but that doesn’t stop me thinking about it. 🙂
